Totally adorable, this brick traditional home is in the hippest, coolest, most rapidly evolving section of In-town Athens. The Normaltown/ Piedmont Hospital area is vibrant, eclectic, growing and changing. Normaltown residents enjoy walkable neighborhoods, a slew of hip restaurants and bars, and convenient access to all of Athens and the Loop. Nearby Bishop Park offers residents close proximity to ballfields, tennis and basketball courts, walking trails and a playground and pool area. Saturday mornings the indoor tennis pavilion is converted to host the Athens Farmer’s Market with food trucks, fresh, locally grown vegetables, flowers and hand crafted goods. Charming older homes are being renovated and new in-fill construction is being built thereby enhancing the area. Located in the highly praised Chase St Elementary School Zone, Normaltown is highly sought after, perfectly located, and quickly becoming the “go-to” choice for families, young professionals, and empty nesters alike.
To that point, 550 King Ave was built in the 1940’s and now has been completely modernized. It has all the functionality of a newer home while maintaining the charm and style of its time. Original hardwood floors span much of the home, including the living room and front two bedrooms. The kitchen has been completely gutted and is open to the living space. It has snappy grey cabinets, open shelving, stainless appliances, a white subway tile backspace, and gorgeous tiled floor. There is a true master suite with a spacious renovated bathroom, and an addition just beyond that provides a carpeted flex space – perfect for a playroom, a home office or an informal den. There is plenty of space for backyard parties and yard games. This home also has plenty of parking and an attached one car garage. The trees in the backyard will take your breath away as they are large, expansive and have a fabulous tree canopy. In short, this house has the advantage of a stellar location with the convenience of being fully renovated and move-in ready. These are difficult qualities to “marry” in our current market but well worth it when you find them. Buying this house in Normaltown is not just buying a house, it’s buying a lifestyle.
New roof, fresh paint, updated inside and out.
